Jeffares: Week 5 from under the Gold Dome

Like a well-oiled machine, the 2017 legislative session is running smoothly as we near the half way point. The General Assembly has sailed through legislative day 16, and we are fully involved in the committee process and passing legislation to better Georgia.

Anderson: Week Five under the Gold Dome

Gingrich Cushman: Yes, And...

If you have ever engaged in improv theater, then you have experienced the process of "yes, and..." What happens is a person says something that may or may not make sense, and you continue forward by following their statement with a "yes, and," which links to what you say next.

Harrop: Is Trump Really Running Things?

Last Saturday night, Donald Trump attended the Red Cross Ball at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. On Sunday, he watched the Super Bowl at his West Palm Beach golf course. As he left Florida on Monday, news emerged that he will probably return this weekend for golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Jeffares: Week 4 from the Capitol

We have now completed day 12 of the Legislative Session and things are moving quickly. Committees are meeting and passing bills daily. We are in full swing and I look forward to keeping you updated as we progress at the Gold Dome.

Belton: Slow and steady wins the race

The Session has been very slow this year. The reasons are many, but the biggest is the philosophy that conservative government – by design – should move slowly in order to avoid rash decisions. Thus, leadership has stated we will pass much less new legislation this year. Also, it seems a long way away, but there are dozens of names floating around for Governor and Lt. Governor in 2018, as well as all the other state-wide offices. Thus, many would-be candidates are posturing on where exactly they want to be… treading lightly to avoid any potential mistakes.

Anderson: Week Four under the Gold Dome

Have You Ever Thought… How it will feel for the Atlanta Falcons be crowned National Champions?

It has only happened once before. The Atlanta Falcons are going to the Super Bowl. Today will see the playing of the fifty-first Super Bowl. And of all the first fifty, the team from our area had only been one time. That year was 1999 at the end of the 1998 season. That game was played in Miami. Of course, today's game will be in Houston.

Jordan: Measuring our goals for the new year

So we have had a month to see how our "new starts" have fared, and if studies are correct, most of those new starts are old news for most people. I have never been big on New Year's Resolutions. Is it laziness? Maybe. Or maybe it is my lack of interest in fading trends. Either way, I do hope that each year I have improved in some way, and of particular importance to me, that I have grown closer to who God wants me to be.

Have You Ever Thought… How it would feel not to be able to go home?

We have a crises in our state. There are 13,000 children who are separated from their families in Georgia. They are in state custody due to neglect, abandonment, or abuse. What we all take for granted in the stability of home is not a part of their world. The number of these children has doubled in the past five years. In Newton County alone, there are 160 children in foster care.

Lassiter: Looking at 2017

The New Year promises to be a very exciting one as we will probably see some big changes in our country. President-Elect Trump has already been labeled the "Executive Eraser" and some of that needs to happen quickly.

For openers, it will be a good idea to visit with your investment advisor in the near future. Investment in defense related stocks and funds could do very well in a Trump administration given his statement of rebuilding our military. Given the fact that Republicans will control Congress for the next two years, this will probably happen.
